Mahamudra is the perfect spot for retreat – quiet and peaceful, the air so fresh, the water pristine, the earth fertile and benign. Arrive early and leave late to prepare before and allow the practice to absorb and deepen afterwards. Be held in the affectionate embrace and care of the Mahamudra staff while exploring the wilds of the mind. Heavenly!


I highly recommend Mahamudra as a place of retreat. The physical location is very beautiful, peaceful and condusive to Spiritual practices. The staff are excellent and very professional – being friendly, helpful and experienced – really helped me to be able to come and focus on the practice. Such a rare and precious offering.

Thank you for the constant kindness, acceptance and joy that radiates from Mahamudra and from those who live and work there.


We had the best possible experience. You could not have done a better job.Wanted to say thank you for taking the time to answer by questions and also for your hospitality, the few days I spent at the centre were truly some of the best I had travelling.


Mahamudra centre holds a very special place in the Colville community, holding many useful courses and it has been a peaceful sanctuary for anyone who has found the stress of life a bit overwhelming and providing a safe, peaceful environment for healing and grounding.


My stay at Mahamudra centre has been wonderful. I have had an incredible time and think this place is very special: the wonderful people, the beautiful gompa,  the stillness and peace of the whole area. I feel very lucky to have experienced it. Keep doing what you are doing!


Mahamudra, is an amazing place! Venerable Nangsel and Sarah make all the volunteers feel welcome and appreciated. My time here was so valuable and went way too fast!!

Venerable Yonten (teacher) is so knowledgeable. Everyone here is kind and patient, it creates a warm friendly atmosphere perfect for quiet time, self reflection in a picturesque part of the Coromandel Peninsular. For sure I know it’s one special place I’ll be back to.
